--Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (regarding Rise of the Dragons)
From #1 Bestselling author Morgan Rice comes a sweeping new fantasy series.
17 year old Ceres, a beautiful, poor girl in the Empire city of Delos, lives the harsh and unforgiving life of a commoner. By day she delivers her father’s forged weapons to the palace training grounds, and by night she secretly trains with them, yearning to be a warrior in a land where girls are forbidden to fight. With her pending sale to slavehood, she is desperate.
18 year old Prince Thanos despises everything his royal family stands for. He abhors their harsh treatment of the masses, especially the brutal competition—The Killings—that lies at the heart of the city. He yearns to break free from the restraints of his upbringing, yet he, a fine warrior, sees no way out.
When Ceres stuns the court with her hidden powers, she finds herself wrongfully imprisoned, doomed to an even worse life than she could imagine. Thanos, smitten, must choose if he will risk it all for her. Yet, thrust into a world of duplicity and deadly secrets, Ceres quickly learns there are those who rule, and those who are their pawns. And that sometimes, being chosen is the worst that can happen.
SLAVE, WARRIOR, QUEEN tells an epic tale of tragic love, vengeance, betrayal, ambition, and destiny. Filled with unforgettable characters and heart-pounding action, it transports us into a world we will never forget, and makes us fall in love with fantasy all over again.
Book #2 in OF CROWNS AND GLORY will be released soon!

This should be part of the Unfortunate Events series - more & more bad things just keep happening. I tried to finish it but just couldn't because the things that go wrong are a bit unbelievable. It's just over the top & I couldn't force myself to finish it.
Reads like a plot summary scribbled on a napkin. A long napkin.
Disclaimer: this is the first Morgan Rice book I've read. And it was free. So maybe her other books are great. Maybe.
This book was not great. And I read a lot of fantasy YA fiction. This book read like an idea of a book, not yet fully formed, not fleshed out.
It could have been great. The concept of a slave girl becoming a gladiator becoming a princess in a fantasy roman setting should work. But the characters were one dimensional, told you what they were thinking and then went and did weird out-of-character things anyway. Backstories that might of influenced hopes and dreams simply didn't. Oh and the most wishy washy characters suddenly become super villains. So strange.
I gave it one star because I'm not sure if you can give zero stars. And it was free.
Worst fantasy book ever
Was like it was written by a ten year old it had no substance, the dialogue was utter nonsense, I couldn't finish it
